Who Are You Trying to Please?

Posted in Devotional Blog on 05-04-09

What is it about us and trying to fit it? Who said Christians are supposed to fit in?

In Acts 17:32, it says that some people flat out SNEERED at Paul and those who talked about Christ. But others of them said, “Hey dude tell me some more.”

The way I see it: This scenario wouldn’t occur very often in our own lives because we’re too scared to have somebody “sneer” at us. We’re too worried about what other people think.

Now I’m not saying for one minute that we should AIM to get people to sneer at us. But I’m saying we have to make sure that we are more concerned about pleasing God than we are about pleasing man. Kinda like this guy…
